Bibb County sheriffs deputies arrested a 57-year-old Macon woman earlier this month on 41 counts of theft by deception.
Adult Protective Services contacted authorities in 2011 after it received a report that an 82-year-old woman was being exploited by her caretaker, Elizabeth Francis, according to the incident report released Monday.
Francis is accused of writing 58 checks out to herself from the victims bank account, totaling $22,893. She was arrested Oct. 4.
Deputies obtained copies of the checks, which were written and cashed by Francis.
The victims son told deputies that Badcock Furniture called him in 2011 seeking payments on a 60-inch television. He replied that his mother did not have the television, according to the report.
Deputies called Badcock, and the store manager told them that Francis arrived at the store claiming that the she was the caretaker of the victim, who wanted the television, but could not enter the store to fill out the paperwork because she could not walk well, according to the report. The contract obtained by the deputies showed Francis signature and that she picked up the television.
A warrant was served on Francis in January 2012, but the jail refused her because of medical conditions.
Francis was served again on Oct. 4 and arrested. As of Monday, Francis was not listed as being in the Bibb County jail.
